With all of the food allergies in our house, it’s hard to find a chicken seasoning or soup base mix we can use. When I do happen to find them, they are super expensive. I finally decided to make my own. After reading the ingredients on some of our favorite (but expensive) options, and noting the relative quantities, I busted out our kitchen scale and had some fun. This recipe was the result and we use it for soups, to flavor beans, mashed potatoes, patties – you name it! Basically any time a recipe calls for chicken seasoning or soup base, this is our go to.
You will need a kitchen scale for this recipe. I usually make a double batch each time. To create a soup base or mock chicken broth, add approx 2 tsp of the finished mix per cup of water. You can adjust based on your tastes.
- 0.075 kg Salt
- 0.03 kg Nutritional Yeast
- 0.003 kg Basil (dried)
- 0.002 kg Parsley (dried)
- 0.012 kg Onion Powder
- 0.011 kg Garlic Powder
- 0.005 kg Tumeric Powder
- 0.003 kg Celery Seed (ground or powder)
- 0.001 kg Dill Seed (ground or powder)
- 0.001 kg Sage Powder
I add all these ingredients to a jar and shake, but you can use a bowl and spoon too.
Have fun with this recipe. Feel free to adjust the amounts according to your tastes. You can use less salt, but I like to keep it in and rarely add additional salt to my recipes. If you like some spice, add pepper or chili powder. I’d love to hear the ways you use this fun seasoning. 🙂
